Great place, loved it. We had a dinner there last night with my 5 and almost 7 year old boys. It was such a nice surprise that the kids could run outside to the fountains to play, while we were waiting for the food. We had a great view to see what they are doing. This made the dinner so relaxing. The service were excellent, every one greeted us with a smile, and the food was served timely. We were well taken care of, but they didn't ask every 5 minutes if everything is OK, which I hate. The food was to die for, so very good. I recommend the Mingo salad, it's like a caesar salad but better. I had the halibut dinner, oh so good, with a tomatoes corn and some green mixture. I wish I knew how to make it at home. We had the lemon tart and the Tiramisu for dessert, both excellent. This dinner was not cheap, we can only afford it probably once a year, but it was worth it.
Another great meal at Mingo.
Wanted a nice dinner not too far from home and chose Mingo. As usual, we had a great dining experience. We have been there with and without our 8 year old, and we have always been taken care of. Started out the night with a "Dare to be Dan"...great spicy drink! The worst part about the evening was having to decide what to order, the choices were all interesting. Finally decided on the late fall menu item with papparadelle pasta, rabbit sausage and butternut squash....it was a great combination of flavors and textures. Our server made some great suggestions for both the menu and wine selections.
This is our favorite restaurant on the Westside. Can't wait for the early winter menu!
I love this place. The food and service is fabulous. Try the shrimp & bread appetizer, caesar salad, halibut with mushroom sauce or the polenta with mushroom sauce. Divine. Great wines at reasonable costs. LOVE IT!
BEST Italian restaurant in Oregon. My wife & I are constantly looking for a good Italian resaurant. We are from the East Coast & the ethnic food are a little different there. While we were in D/T Beaverton I pulled out my "Smart Phone", pulled up an "app" that is "Have 2 Eat" & started scrolling thru to find someplace that we hadn't been to yet. When I got to Mingo West & read all of the other reviews I thought that no restaurant could be that good. So, that night we decided to give it a try. Guess what? It was everything they all said it was and more. The food & service are well worth the prices. Our server Susan was an absolute delight. We are going to put Mingo on our "short list" of regular restaurants to visit. It is the BEST Italian restaurant in Oregon.
Better each time you go. Creative menu and wine list. Nice setting most of the time. Don't let the building repairs stop you from coming. Very easy parking.
Great Food & Great Service. Took my wife here for her birthday. My Halibut with Corn Salsa was outstanding. My wife had the pulled beef and penne which was OK for a beef eater but not to my liking. She really likes fish better so should not have ordered it. Bread was excellent, salad was OK with only lettuce and a dressing, needs other vegetables, and the service was excellent. When the restaurant got full it was very noisy. They have added curtains between tables which we liked, but they need an accoustics engineer to fix the noise. With 3 tables of 6 or 8 in the middle, the place was really noisy and could hardly carry on a conversation. The food was excellent, and too full to try dessert. Will return in the Summer time when we can eat outside.
My favorite eatery when visitng Portland.. I reside on Maui and frequent Portland as often as I can. I never miss the opportunity to spend an evening at Mingo's. I am always greeted as though I were family; the staff extend themselves with such warmth and hospitality. I will say a special Thank You to Mat, Michael and Monica for the special attention you always show me. I always know I will be treated to a special meal no matter which dishes I choose. Every meal that I have eaten there has been excellent. I have also attended their "Cooking Class", which was a gift to me from my son and it turned out to be the best birthday gift ever. Keep up the good work.
great food and really nice people. I ate here with my girlfriend recently and had a great dinner. Our service was great and casual, and the food was hearty and delicious. The wine list is extensive and I was expertly guided by the owner himself. We will be back!
European Delight in Beaverton!. While traveling, I could not wait to get back to the delicious food served at Mingo! Just like the restaurants in Europe, Mingo is friendly with a staff who has been working together since it opened. Because it is locally owned, there is a feeling that everyone is there just for you. The food is deliciously delightful, and I love the time I spend at Mingo!
Mingo:Simple Italian at its Best.
Mingo is a great restaurant that I have been going to for years. It has the best pizza. In fact, I won't get pizza anywhere else. Their dishes are fresh, simple, local and organic whenever possible. The atmoshere is hip, fun, yet unpretentious.
You can tell the staff and owner really care about what they do and take pride in making Mingo what it is: a place for people who really want to partake in the joy of food, wine and friends.
The place has soul and integrity - you can't find that too often
